Guest Post: “To the mom I never knew”

Talisa is back again today as a guest blogger!

Well, I’ve been part of this organization at my college called Our Adoptions Organization, which I’m the president for. It’s a support group and also provides education about adoption. It has been very good for me because everyone in the group supports each other. I never thought that I would be so lucky to become such an important person to these people. They have taught me a lot, and I’m grateful.

I’m writing this blog because of one young lady — Parker-Marie, the daughter of Candace and Philip. She wrote me a poem about birth moms, but it’s also for her birth mom and for my daughter. The poem warms my heart every time I read it, and I wanted to share it with you all. She is only nine years old, and she told me that she is just expressing how she feels, but I think it’s a wonderful poem. I would love to hear from you guys about what you think.

This young lady is the most remarkable young lady I’ve ever met, and she reminds me of me when I was her age, which is a wonderful feeling. I’m her mentor for the Big Brother, Big Sister Program and I couldn’t be more proud. So here is Ms. Parker-Marie’s poem.

To the mom I never knew

I’ve always known I was adopted

But I never thought it was a dream

I thought my first mommy didn’t love me

Of course I know that isn’t true

I’ve always wondered thinking of you

In my heart I know she’s there

I will follow my heart when I know she’s near

I live a life of happiness not shame

And I know that she’s out there

Living in bliss not pain;

I know that she thinks of me everyday

And I doubt that she would forget my face

I bet she’s married and has more kids

And I know that she has told them of her first kid

I love you mommy where ever you are

till that day we meet

We will go far

I know that we will go far and can’t be beat

I wanted to let you know that this one is for you

And no matter if you gave me up

You’re still my queen

Even though I’m only nine years old

I feel I’m like you in so many ways

The way I look, and feel can’t ever be beat;

And I’m proud to say

I have two Mommy’s to love

And it’s the greatest feeling that God gave me from up above
